NFL’s Clay Matthews Tackles a Special Remodel Project

Green Bay Packers linebacker Clay Matthews’ bruising style of play often causes his opponents to reach for the Advil and soak in an ice bath after a game.

But off the gridiron, there’s a much softer side to Matthews, especially when it comes to his family. That caring personality is on full display in a recent HouzzTV episode in which Matthews hires NAHB Remodelers member Pat Hurst of Hurst Design & Build in Middleburg Heights, Ohio, for a special home renovation.

The twist is that this project wasn’t even for Matthews’ own home: He was seeking a professional remodeler to renovate the home of his brother and sister-in-law, who were expecting twin boys. Matthews wanted to help create a home better suited for the needs of a growing family with two newborns.

Matthews and Hurst Design & Build were initially connected, in part, because of Hurst’s large presence on Houzz. After the parties met last fall and discussed the scope of the project, Matthews knew Hurst had the right skills and experience for the job.

“Working with Clay and the Matthews family was a great experience from beginning to end,” said Hurst. “The episode turned out great, too, especially because it highlights some of the benefits of Houzz and gives consumers a more realistic perspective of a typical remodeling project.”

NAHB and Houzz developed a strategic partnership more than two years ago, enabling NAHB members to use Houzz’s technology and marketing capabilities to connect with a community of more than 40 million home owners and others interested in building or renovating homes. NAHB members can visit the Houzz/NAHB member portal to create or update their free professional profiles.
